FILIPINO BOX SPRING HOG       TOM WAITS


     Em                                                    D
Well I hung on to Mary's stump, I danced with a soldiers glee
       Em                                                      D
With a rum-soaked crook, and a big fat laugh, I spent my last dollar on thee
   Em                                                D
I saw Bill Bones, gave him a yell, Kehoe spiked the nog
       Em 
With a chain link fence and a scrap-iron jaw
 D                      Em

Cooking up a Filipino Box Spring Hog
Cooking up a Filipino Box Spring Ho-o-o-g

Dig a big pit in a dirt alley road, fill it with madrone and bay
Smells like hell and the neighbours complain, don't give a hoot what they sayyyy
You gotta slap that hog..... 
Roll him over twice.....
Baste him with a sweeping broom
You gotta swat them flies, and chain up the dogs

Rattlesnake piccatta with grapes and figs, Old Brown Betty with a yellow wig
'Tain't the mince-meat filigreeee, and it ain't the turley-neck stew
And it ain't them bruleed ochra seeds, tho' she made them special for you
Worse won a prize for the bottom-black pie, the beans got thrown to the dawgs,
Je-he-sius Christ, I can always make room
